Prior to joining the University of Nottingham as a lecturer in Dynamics and Control (June 2013) Dimitrios conducted research in Structural Dynamics and Vibroacoustics within EADS Astrium (currently Airbus Defense and Space) at Les Mureaux, France (2009-'12). The research was funded by the EU FP7 project coded MID-FREQUENCY and resulted in the attribution of a PhD from the Ecole Centrale de Lyon. He also holds a MSc with Distinction in Automotive Systems Engineering by Loughborough University (2008-'09) and a Masters in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2003-'08).

Dimitrios is a part of the Composites Research Group.

Research Summary

My current research interests focus on:

-Prediction of the dynamic and acoustic performance of aerospace composites.

-Design optimisation of composite multifunctional structures.

-Structural health monitoring of aerospace composites.

-Design of adaptive composites and metamaterials having exceptional damping and structural controllability properties.

Students with a first or a 2:1 degree in mechanical engineering or a relevant discipline and a solid background in dynamics and/or composites are welcome for discussing on funded PhD opportunities.
